A Healthy Difference

GanedenBC30® Helps Support Your Health

Probiotics, like GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) are beneficial bacteria that can provide you with functional health benefits. Science shows that it supports the health of your digestive and immune systems when consumed in adequate amounts.

A Primer on Microbiota in Your Gut

The gut microbiota is the population of trillions of bacteria and other microorganisms in your intestines that are key to your health and well-being. Researchers are learning that the gut microbiome is important for many aspects of your health such as your digestive health, immune health and absorption of nutrients from food. Over the past few decades, an expanding body of research has demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, heart health, and oral health. Most recently, a gut microbiome-brain connection has been identified, meaning that the microorganisms in our gut can impact how our brains work.

Out-of-Balance Microbiota

Everyday stresses can disrupt the microbiota in your gut, and thus, can impact your health and wellness. These stressors can include:

  • Antibiotics and medications
  • Hormonal changes
  • Poor diet
  • Illness
  • Aging
  • Stress
  • Travel

Probiotic Advantage

Many experts agree that a healthy lifestyle and probiotics may help keep gut microbiota balanced. Probiotics can help regulate bacterial populations, which can help keep your systems running smoothly. But not all probiotics are created the same.

In the world of probiotics, strain differentiation is not just important, it’s vital, because the benefits of a probiotic actually depend on the probiotic strain.

Probiotic Benefits are Strain-specific

Every bacteria strain has its own strain-specific characteristics and benefits. This means health benefits, safety and clinical data from one strain cannot be used to support the safety and efficacy of another strain. It’s vital that consumers and food manufacturers understand that there are often nuanced, but important, differences between strains. When selecting or recommending a probiotic, it’s important to look at the research supporting that strain specifically.

are Created Equal
While demand for digestive health and probiotic fortified foods and beverages is clear, not all probiotics are the same. Different strains offer different benefits, and some are more effective and more efficacious than others. There are also important variations in levels of probiotic performance such as survivability, health benefit efficacy, and formulation flexibility.

What Makes a Quality Probiotic Ingredient?

Because meeting consumer demand for digestive health benefits in everyday foods and beverages can be difficult, a quality probiotic ingredient is essential. Simply put, quality means the probiotic:

  • Is non-pathogenic and non-toxic
  • Contains a defined inclusion amount supported by published peer-reviewed clinical papers
  • Survives manufacturing processing conditions
  • Is stable over the shelf-life of the product
  • Survives transit through the stomach
The High Quality of GanedenBC30 is Supported by Clinical Research
GanedenBC30 is a high-quality ingredient substantiated by scientific research. More than 25 published papers demonstrate the safety, efficacy and benefits of GanedenBC30.

Benefit from GanedenBC30

When most people think of gut health, they think of freedom from traditional stomach issues—bloating, cramping and discomfort, for example. What many of us don’t realize is that gut health encompasses more–way more–than all of that. In fact, when it comes to gut health, the digestive organs function like a miniature city, with interrelated parts contributing to the overall function of the gut microbiome.

With food and beverage a top driver for wellness, today’s consumers are both more aware of, and more interested in, the impact of nutrition on the microbiome. GanedenBC30 has been shown to support digestive health, immune health, and protein utilization.
